UPN TO OFFER LARGEST SLATE OF HDTV PROGRAMMING IN ITS HISTORY

Record Five Hours A Week To Be Broadcast in Hi-Def in 2004-2005 Season

UPN will present its largest slate of HDTV programming in the history of the network for the 2004-2005 season, it was announced today by Dawn Ostroff, President, Entertainment, UPN. Half of the network�s primetime line-up � a record seven series �will be broadcast in high definition television, beginning with the premieres of all three of UPN�s drama series �Veronica Mars,� �Kevin Hill� and �Star Trek: Enterprise,� and extending to UPN�s Monday night comedies �One on One,� �Half & Half,� �Girlfriends� and �Second Time Around� by November. This brings the Network�s weekly HDTV offerings to five hours. Last season, UPN presented two hours of series programming in HDTV, including �Star Trek: Enterprise,� as well as select Friday night movies.

�HDTV is going to further enhance what are already high-quality, visually stunning dramas and comedies,� said Dawn Ostroff, President, Entertainment, UPN. �We are very pleased to introduce the growing HDTV audience to UPN�s programming.�

UPN, in partnership with CBS Television and Sony, recently added a second hi-def editing suite to its Television City production center, which allows it to significantly increase its HDTV offerings.
